Answers to this letter were all very intelli<;ible and complete; but, un- 
fortunately, they came in very slowly, necessitatins the sendini; of several 
reminders to the tardy municipalities. This, of course, took some time; but a 
very complete set of answers was finally obtained. Howe\er, as such a long 
period of time liad elapsed between the .sendinj: out of the circular letter and 
the receipt of the last answers, it was feared that some of tlie information 
first obtained had become out of date. In order to remedy this a second 
circular letter was despatched; but, in order to facilitate matters, a synopsis 
of the information previously obtained was sent to the officer indiarj^eof the 
different water-works, askinj; him to revise, correct and brinp it up to date. 
To furtlier expedite matters, personal visits were paid to some of the delin- 
quent town.s by the Hydro-Electric Engineer of the Commission, and the 
deficient information was obtained directly. 

The mformation thus obtained has been arranged in a concise and con- 
venient form, and it is hoped tliat it will prove valuable to ihose interested
